My experience

I pre ordered the DP1 as soon as I could.  I learned the quirks of the camera and patterned my shooting to meet them.  I loved the images and that such an imager fit into my shirt pocket.  I used it exclusively for 2 years or so.  It broke!  The replacement broke!

The 3rd one broke sitting on a shelf.  I turned it on, took a shot, turned it off.  A week later I picked it up and the lens broke while extending.  I sent that one back and the 4th one broke also.

The replacements seemed to run $180 + shipping + insurance. After the first replacement I treated the camera like the most delicate flower but they still broke.  After the 2nd return, Sigma USA began to abuse me.

Great camera.  Needed QC and a good broom on their service dept.
